Why does Windows use SetLastError/GetLastError
Why does the Windows API use the SetLastError/GetLastError model instead of just having functions return success or an error code? Is there any reason someone writing their own API for Win32 should use the Get/Set LastError model instead of just returning sucess or error code? Thanks.
